The Challenge for
The availability of eLearning, with its
financial benefit and possibility of
learning autonomy and ownership
is strongly seductive but with
a glance at the 1872 novel
Erewhon [Nowhere - Samuel Butler]
it is an incomplete utopia.
The Study Centre Licence delivers
access to content that is huge in
quantity and high in quality.
Top grade students will, self-directed,
garner ‘the goodies’. The Study Centre
is well indexed but, apart from work
for the Individual Study, the great majority
of AS and A2 students will need encouragement
to explore and will be helped by reference to
particular articles and resources.
Teachers/tutors themselves will need
give themselves time to explore
and assess the Study Centre resource
and list items that they will
encourage their students to use.
Seminar-style discussion, after time
allocated for reading specified content,
is a good format to assess success
with Study Centre content use.
